Lands, energy and water development minister Chris Yaluma says the country has sufficient fuel stocks contrary to media reports that there is a shortage of fuel in the country.
Mr. Yaluma however states that the fuel shortage that was minimally experienced in some few parts of the country this week can be attributed to a short perceived strike that was resorted to by fuel transporters.
In a telephone interview with Qfm from Kitwe, Mr. Yaluma says as the situation stands, the country has enough fuel in stock.
He says the incident should not bbe attributed to lack of proper measures in place by the Patriotic Front government but Bdue to some individuals who want to put the country to ridicule.
Mansa district in Luapula province has been hit by a fuel shortage, with only one filling station having the commodity.
